Good to,know. I have a stock 94 GT and assume I would need to have the pistons cut if I went with a 2.02 valves. But I would have to measure to be sure.
Following. I'm also installing heads with 2.02 intake valves on my '94 GT stock pistons.

Stock pistons have the valve reliefs forged (or cast) in, not cut. All bets are off.
I would assume they can be cut larger if necessary. Is this incorrect? I assume they have to be pulled to be cut so you are pretty much looking at a rebuild by that point. then you ave to look at the cost of cutting them vs buying some that already have the relief

Pistons can be cut in car. There's a couple places that sell the tool.

They can. And one of the nicest things about Fords is that they usually don't need the reliefs to be very deep.
